Association members can access free test prep

CARBONDALE, Ill. -- All members of the SIU Alumni Association who plan to earn graduate and professional degrees have the opportunity to practice for upcoming entrance exams later this month at Southern Illinois University Carbondale.

In conjunction with Kaplan Test Prep National Test Day, the Association will provide free practice tests for the LSAT (law school), MCAT (medical school), GMAT (business school), GRE (graduate school), PCAT (pharmacy school), OAT (optometry school), and DAT (dental school) entrance exams.  The event is Saturday, Feb. 25, at various locations and times on campus depending on the test.

Test takers will receive real-time scores after the exam is finished.  The complimentary practice tests are available to members of the SIU Alumni Association only.

In addition, two practice exam registrants will each win a certificate for a complimentary online Kaplan prep class.  The classes are valued at $2,000 apiece.

SIU Carbondale staff from the SIU School of Law, SIU School of Medicine, College of Business, and the Graduate School will also be present. Kaplan professors will be available by the Internet to provide real-time feedback, answers and advice.
